Should'nt Openmoko have a mail client and PIM with sync for everyone  
anyways? Before someone wastes time on a j2me solution for one single  
There is not much choice right now.

Yea, and they are all crap.
Thats at best a workaround for existing apps. Clearly not a solution  
for base apps.

What they are offering is some locked in solution for some retarded  
symbian phones.

I'm with you. We need a J2ME runtime, just for compatibility reasons.  
But not to give us a great PIM package.

Im just trying to talk sense in you all.

If Zimbra want's to do someting usefull they should offer a SyncML  
interface or some half decent conctacts sync protocol.
